Impact One Community Connection, Inc. is a grassroots community based organization that focuses on addressing issues within North Omaha. Impact One realizes the issues facing our community were not created over night and will not be fixed over night. We know that members of the North Omaha community have been marginalized and we strive to empower community residents in efforts to correct this problem.
We understand that the lack of opportunity, available jobs and quality education has taken its toll on our community. We reach out to individuals who are often forgotten and we offer them services to help address social issues they face. We believe many of the youth who are labeled as gang members will change their way of life if given the opportunity.
We provide direct gang intervention and prevention, re-entry services, employment training and resource referrals. Impact One has a variety of meanings; impacting one life, impacting one community, impacting Omaha, NEbraska.
We provide alternatives to program participants and we strive to help them reach their goals. Through our programs we aim to:
• Reduce behaviors that lead to incarceration, recidivism, truancy, suspensions from school/work and drug/alcohol use in program participants.
• Improve social behaviors of program participants, including improved interaction with peers, family and communities through teaching and understanding the importance of positive decision-making.
• Reduce isolation through the delivery of referral services for program participants.
